Abstract:

"La historia de amor furtivo de Nadia y Said tiene lugar en una ciudad llena de puntos de control y bombas. Es un laberinto humano donde, al empezar la guerra civil, surgen extrañas habladurías: rumores sobre puertas que podían llevarlo a uno a otro lugar, concretamente a lugares remotos, alejados de aquella trampa mortal de país. En una historia épica de tremenda actualidad, esta insólita pareja de amantes huirá para recalar primero en Mikonos y luego ir desplazándose hacia el oeste, compartiendo el periplo vital de millones de personas que sufren en sus carnes el rechazo (o, en ocasiones, la bienvenida) de Occidente"--casadellibro.com.

"In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet-- sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors-- doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through. [This book] follows the couple as they emerge into an alien and uncertain future, struggling to hold on to each other, to their past, to the very sense of who they are."--Regular print book.
